The Learn2Work project recently held its final event in Brussels to present a new best practice model for the training in the shoe industry of young people at risk of continued and future employment. Funded by the Erasmus+ program, the initiative is promoted by the European Footwear Confederation (CEC) and Think Young, a think-tank that supports young people's interests. The new training model focuses on peer-to-peer learning by doing, led by tutors, and introduces a set of social, personal and professional skills. It has already been successfully tested in Italy, Spain and Portugal.
